  • A twisted love story done hilariously.

    A man (Andrew McCarthy) finally gets the woman of his dreams (Mariel Hemingway) interested in him, but there are consequences. He slips a love potion into her drink, that he got from an odd fellow in his apartment building, and she becomes obsessed with him. She won't leave him alone, so he is forced to do something that he never thought he could do. I won't spoil it for anyone who has yet to see it. Mariel Hemingway also briefly exposes her breasts in one scene. A funny, creepy episode from season three of Tales From the Crypt. Worth seeing!moreless

    • Edward: I thought these words would never cross these lips: Miranda, I'm f***ed out.
      Miranda: I'm not f***ed out!

    • [Opening wraparound segment.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Dying for a date? Aching for a little prick of passion? Well be careful what you wish for, or like the young man in tonight's terror tale, you may just get it! I call this nauseating number "Loved to Death".

      [Closing wraparound segment.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Good old Edward. He should have stuck to sending mash notes. Maybe then he wouldn't have ended up in a state of holy deadlock. [turns to skeleton girl] So, was it good for you too? Ooh, talk about head over heels. [laughs]
